It’s happening: T-Mobile-Sprint merger approved, now officially allowed to merge
The long-gestating merger of T-Mobile and Sprint is one big step closer to actually happening. A US District judge has officially ruled that the merger of the two carriers should happen, over the objections of many state attorney generals.
CNBC reports that Judge Victor Marrero felt the states did not prove that the T-Mobile-Sprint merger would be bad for competition in the wireless carrier space. In its own press release, T-Mobile stated the judge’s decision was a “huge victory for this merger” and that the two carriers can now work on the final details to close the deal.
